Rafa Nadal took another step closer to a 10th French Open with a ruthless 6-0, 6-1, 6-0 third-round thrashing of Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili on Friday.

Nadal romps to win in 100th best-of-five clay match

Fourth seed Nadal eased to the most one-sided victory of his Roland Garros career as his 63rd-ranked opponent, who was playing his first match on Court Philippe Chatrier, was struck down by stagefright.

Nadal celebrates his win over Basilashvili.

Basilashvili, 25, hit just five winners and committed 34 unforced errors in a 90-minute horror show.

It was the 100th best-of-five-set match on clay that Nadal had played in his career. His record now stands at 98-2, with his only two losses coming at Roland Garros.

Bautista Agut up next for Nadal

"Perfection? I don't know about that," said Nadal, who goes on to meet fellow Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut for a place in the quarter-finals.
